Panda Updates – Friday, December 6
The Panda Care Team checks on each of the giant pandas, as well as Idgie the red panda, multiple times throughout the day. One reason that we do this is to ensure that all of the pandas are still favoring the bamboo that we have provided them. Sometimes, we might bring them inside while we go out into one of the outdoor habitats to clean and set up the habitat again, but we can also just toss them fresh bamboo and leafeater biscuits while they are still out in the habitat. Here, you can see Yang Yang waiting as one of the Panda Care Team members throws him some fresh bamboo and leafeater biscuits. If you’re ever tuned into PandaCam and see the pandas looking up, it’s most likely because we’re up top and they are patiently waiting for their “sky biscuits” as we like to call them!
